Behavior abilities

Some abilities also permit changing the behavior of the SharinPix Album, such as sorting.

With  Sort you can use these 2 parameters:

  • field- corresponds to the date used to sort the images of the search results. It takes two values:
    • created_at - It is the date on which the image has been uploaded to SharinPix.
    • date_taken - It is the date on which the photo has been captured by a device.
  • order  - corresponds to the order in which the images appear in the search results. it takes these values:
    • asc - The images appear from the least recent to the most recent(based on the date defined in field)
    • desc - The images appear from the most recent to the least recent(based on the date defined in field)

You can use this as an example in a inline VF Page with this code to force the sort to be ascending and depending on the date on which the photo has been captured by the camera:

<SharinPix:SharinPix height="500px" 
                            'Id': '{!CASESAFEID($CurrentPage.parameters.Id)}',
                            '{! CASESAFEID($currentPage.parameters.Id) }':{

Generate SharinPix abilities automatically

 The SharinPix Code Generator offers a quick and easy user interface to select the different SharinPix Abilities and generate the corresponding Code to be used in:

  • Canvas App
  • Visualforce Component
  • Apex Custom Controller
  • Lightning Component
  • SharinPix Permission

Where do we find the Standard Album Function? What I have that says this, doesn't look like this.

From the Standard album function section, select the SharinPix Abilities you want to enable on the SharinPix Album. 

  • Default: the default value is automatically assigned for each SharinPix Ability.
  • Yes  for All options: Enable all SharinPix Abilities.
  • No for All options: Disable all SharinPix Abilities.
  • Select Default/Yes/No for each SharinPix Ability to assign its default value or enable/disable it accordingly.

The screenshot below describes the Standard album function section:

After selecting the value for each SharinPix ability, the automatically-generated code for each component is shown in the following samples:


Visualforce Component
